Mindful Eating: Aligning With Sustenance

blog_mindfulnessI’m fed up.  I’m fed up with all the supplements on my counter and in my cupboards that are half full or have a couple of tablets left in them.  I don’t want to toss them because the damn things cost so much!  I’m actually embarrassed by the amount of supplemental detritus I have.

This angst has brought me to an experiment I am conducting energetically aligning with food.  What would happen if I sat for a couple of breaths before I ate a meal, a snack or drank a cup of tea?  What would happen if I opened up my body and felt the nutritional energy of each bite or sip before I consumed it?  These past couple of days I’ve done just that.  I’ve slowed down and opened my body to the nutrients in the food I’ve been eating.  I’ve noticed how some foods have a faster or higher vibration than others.  Some foods feel “empty” while others feel chock full of nutrients.

Once I start to chew the food I invite my body to absorb the nutrients in it and ask those nutrients to go to all the places that the body needs.  I’m not sure what the result of this experiment will be.  The intention is to get the nutrients my body needs from the food I eat and not from a pill.

I wonder if when I eat unconsciously if that inhibits the body from absorbing nutrients efficiently?  I do know that when I over eat my stomach will ache and my liver will hurt.  I will keep you posted with any observations I make as result of this practice.  I would love to hear about your experiences if you’ve done a similar test yourself.

Cherry Bomb Smoothie

This is one of the first recipes I posted many years ago. An oldy but a goody!  The only things I would change is stewing the cherries and then getting them cold again.  The reason being as I digest cooked fruits and veggies much more easily than raw.  I have since been turned on to powdered peanut butter too.  Less fat.  Nuf said.

I called this the Cherry Bomb because of my little brother.  When something is good he always says “It’s the bomb!”

  • 1/2 c.  Dark Red Cherries (I used frozen)
  • 1/2  Avocado
  • 1 Tbs.  Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tbs.  Raw Cacao

Put every thing in the blender and add enough almond milk (or milk of your choice) to blend.  Because of the avocado this has a pudding like consistency.  It’s the bomb!
